COVID-19 and the Mental Health Crisis in Palestinian Refugee Camps in Lebanon
Wednesday, 21 April at 12.00pm. Register at Eventbrite
The Centre for Global Education invites participation in an online seminar that will discuss the challenging living conditions faced by Palestinians in refugee camps in Lebanon and the impact that extreme poverty and marginalisation has on their mental health and overall wellbeing.
The event’s guest speaker is Dr Muna Khalidi, vice-president of Beit Atfal as-Somoud, an NGO based in Beirut that provides mental health programmes to Palestinian refugees in Lebanon. Dr Khalidi will discuss how extended lockdowns during the COVID-19 pandemic in Lebanon, have exacerbated the mental health crisis in these refugee camps.
